A painting & hobby Blog for the less than perfect.
Zab,When you paint like this, are you painting for the final placement, as in, not painting the part that is pressed into the putty? Or do you flip the model around as you paint, etc! Looking good, I'm just always curious how everyone works!
Yes, i keep final placement very much in mind and after each set of colors i even tack the mini together and check to make sure my shadows and highlights are in the right places. I do flip the model around to place shadows and tack it in different ways to get at spots i can't reach. It's weird but for display minis it has to be done. I you get a feel for it quickly and and space marines are just second nature to me. I have to slow down for other models and assemble them as much as possible. I a pretty sure i could paint a marine in pieces and put him together after and he would look fine. That is how well i know beakies o_O
Thanks zab. I'm a bit drunk right now, but appreciate your awesome response none the less. Thanks to autocorrect this is a covert statements.
Hmmmm ... the way he is lying down, the space marine kinda reminds me of a Playboy centerfold model. LMAO Er-hem ... not that a distinguished gentlemen such as myself would ever look at such magazines. D'oh! Good progress so far by the way.
LOL! Sexy Space marine?! Looks like I've found my next Hallowe'en costume!!!
Very nice. Can't wait to see it finished. Especially the jester
Thanks! He was a challenge :)
By all means have your say, but please keep it civil.
